Smart Fleet Management Market Outlook - 2027 

The global smart fleet management market was valued at $38,245.6 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $98,656.5 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 15.8%. Asia-Pacific was the highest revenue contributor, with a CAGR of 17.7%. Smart fleet management is an integration of fleet management technologies utilized to manage, maintain, and attain the optimum efficient operations of the fleet. It enables the digital technology application for maintenance and fuel management along with driver safety, telematics, tracking, and smart surveillance. In recent years, use of smart fleet management is rising at a considerable rate as it offers critical alerts, real-time alerts, driver behavior, anti-theft notifications, and safety alerts. Moreover, use of smart fleet management enhances safety, ensures compliance, and reduces costs. Smart fleet operators track the target transportation medium in real-time to reduce idle period and transportation costs, thereby increasing the operational efficiency of fleet management. The purpose of this is to provide effective fleet tracking, real-time monitoring, a dedicated remote server for fleet data, and security features in a single system. 

Factors, such as integration of real-time fleet monitoring systems in vehicles, increase in use of cloud-based technology for smart fleet management solutions, and enhanced vehicle monitoring & fuel management, are expected to drive the growth of the global smart fleet management market. However, price concerns of fleet owners and cyber security concerns are expected to restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period. On the contrary, better driver and vehicle safety, enhancement of business decisions for fleet owners, development of intelligent transportation system, and increase in demand from developing countries are anticipated to offer remunerative opportunities for the expansion of the market in the near future.

Optimization is projected as the most lucrative segments

Increase in use of cloud-based technology for smart fleet management solutions 

With increase in demand for connectivity and fleet management solutions, smart devices and applications have become the go-to tools for fleet operators. Tracking assets, driver monitoring, fleet optimization, and other related issues are addressed by cloud management solutions. Furthermore, cloud enables the backup and recovery of data and applications on a secondary storage or infrastructure. In addition, many organizations are deploying different cloud models to overcome the drawbacks of traditional fleet management solutions. For instance, apart from tracking Softweb’s cloud-based solution powered by big data analytics, AI, IoT, and other emerging technologies, smart fleet management-based solutions analyze information of fleet, such as route planning, fuel analytics, and driving patterns, to improve productivity and save fuel. Moreover, AI and machine learning capabilities facilitate autonomous dispatching & routing and empower fleet managers to predict vehicle health and driving habits based on the vehicle’s utilization along with lower maintenance requirements and cost-effectiveness. All these factors significantly contribute to the growth of the market.

Long Range is projected as the most lucrative segments

Better driver and vehicle safety

Real-time monitoring, geo-fencing, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and diagnostic features are incorporated in railways, marine transport, and automotive due to increase in demand for fleet safety and security in transportation of goods and passengers. According to experts, fleet management is expected to grow rapidly in developing nations. Asia-Pacific has witnessed strong adoption of fleet management solutions, such as installation of global positioning system (GPS) in commercial vehicles, due to regulatory mandates. Tracking and follow-up of fleet and driver are the major tasks of a fleet manager. Additionally, accidents have increased at a considerable rate, which has become a crucial matter to be handled by the fleet owners. Moreover, safety and security of both the driver & vehicle have always been crucial from the perspective of consumers as well as auto manufacturers. In case of accidents, these smart fleet management operated vehicles can send an SOS message along with the coordinates of the driver’s location. In case of theft, owners can track their vehicles instantly using a smartphone app developed for this purpose. Therefore, increase in need for safety and security is expected to boost the growth of the smart fleet management market.

Price concerns of fleet owners

High cost of fleet management systems and other activities majorly affect the return on investment (ROI) of local fleet management businesses as they can barely afford it. As per the statistics given by Expert Market, installation cost for a fleet management system can reach up to $100 for advanced tier system. The additional costs incurred while providing connectivity in the vehicle may act as a restraint for the smart fleet management market. Providing connectivity solution in the vehicle externally incurs additional expenses to the consumers in the form of hardware, connectivity solutions, and telecom service charges. These additional costs for consumers may have a significant impact on the smart fleet management market. In addition, cost of labor, connectivity, and other activities are anticipated to hinder the growth of the local businesses.

COVID-19 impact analysis

The COVID-19 crisis is creating uncertainty in the market by slowing down the supply chains, hampering business growth, and increasing panic among the customer segments. Fleet operators are expected to focus on the working capital management and there are very less chances for heavy investment in advanced technology. However, there are most probable chances of sales momentum for smart fleet management technology, owing to its operational feasibility to attain safety measure along with cost-effectiveness of operations. Market participants of smart fleet management are following certain approaches to manage the fleet operations by slashed fleet budgets, extended equipment lifecycles, decreased staff sizes, and reduced salaries in the short term to overcome the financial downturn. Attributed to the financial downturn, majority of the end users of smart fleet management are inclining toward commercial fleet management despite installing and managing the private fleet. The uncertain demand scenario in the COVID-19 pandemic for the end users and high capital expenditure are expected to spur the inclination toward commercial fleet management. Commercial fleet management enables effective working capital management along with no requirement for additional workforce to manage the fleet operations.
